This is a simple fish fry but it tastes good. The addition of shallots gives a nice taste to this.


Fish – 4 fish fillets( I used tilapia)

Shallots – 4 or 5

Ginger garlic paste – 1 1/2 tsp

Red chilli powder – 2 tsp

Turmeric powder – 1 tsp

Coriander powder – 3 tsp

Salt – as required

Curry leaves – a fist full

Oil – as required for shallow fry


  • Smash shallots in mortar and pestle or pulse it in mixer.
  • Cut half of the curry leaves finely.
  • Add shallots, ginger garlic paste, spice powders, curry leaves and salt.
  • Make a paste.
  • Marinate fish and keep aside for 30 mins to 1 hour.
  • Heat oil in the pan.
  • Put the remaining curry leaves in it.
  • Then cook fish in medium flame till it gets cooked.


Simple Fish Fry



  1. You can use any fish.
  2. This tastes even good when cooked in coconut oil.
  3. Adding curry leaves in oil prevents fish from sticking in pan. Also your house won’t smell fish.?( I got this tip from my aunt).
  4. Spice level mentioned here is low. You can adjust as per your taste.
